The Who will return 'stronger than ever'

The Who will return “stronger than ever” after postponing tour dates over Roger Daltrey’s health, says Pete Townshend.

The frontman was this month diagnosed with viral meningitis, which forced them to change plans for their The Who Hits 50! North American shows.

But Daltrey says: “I’m now on the mend, and feeling a lot better.”

Townshend adds: “We’ll be starting our rescheduled shows in March, and we’ll be coming back stronger than ever.”

The band last week released a trailer for their Hyde Park concert movie, which will be screened in cinemas across the world on October 7.
